Anna Lore has been cast as Stephanie Brown in The CW’s Gotham Knights pilot.
The CW continues to build its cast for Gotham Knights before filming on the pilot begins next month. The pilot will feature familiar Batman characters such as Two-Face and Carrie Kelley, and it has now been revealed that Anna Lore will portray Stephanie Brown.
Stephanie Brown was created by Chuck Dixon and Tom Lyle and has taken on the role of Robin, Batgirl, and Spoiler over the years. For The CW pilot, Anna Lore’s version is described as “someone whose sarcasm is matched only by her intellect. She was raised on a steady diet of brain teasers and puzzles and honed her skills to become a formidable coder. But her greatest talent may be hiding a less-than-perfect home life.”
Anna Lore is no stranger to DCTV, having played Penny Farthing on Doom Patrol. Morgan Kohan played Stephanie Brown in her live-action debut on Batwoman and Titans season three also recently featured a nod to the character.
Here is the premise for The CW’s Gotham Knights:
In the wake of Bruce Wayne’s murder, his rebellious adopted son forges an unlikely alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies when they are all framed for killing the Caped Crusader. And as the city’s most wanted criminals, this renegade band of misfits must fight to clear their names. But in a Gotham with no Dark Knight to protect it, the city descends into the most dangerous it’s ever been. However, hope comes from the most unexpected of places as this team of mismatched fugitives will become its next generation of saviors known as the Gotham Knights.
Written by Batwoman‘s Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux, and Natalie Abrams, the Gotham Knights pilot will star Oscar Morgan as Turner Hayes, Olivia Rose Keegan as Duela Dent, Navia Robinson as Carrie Kelley, Fallon Smythe as Harper Row, Tyler DiChiara as Cullen Row, Misha Collins as Harvey Dent, and Anna Lore as Stephanie Brown.
